    Actor Anton Yelchin, perhaps best known for his role in the new “Star Trek” films, died early Sunday after his vehicle rolled down his Studio City driveway and trapped the actor against a mailbox, authorities confirmed.

    Friends went to the 27-year-old actor’s home shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday, when he didn’t show up for a rehearsal as expected, LAPD Officer Jenny Houser told The Times. Authorities believe Yelchin’s vehicle rolled backwards down the steep driveway, Houser said, pinning him against a brick mailbox and security gate.

    That's like celebrity death #2,645 for the year 2016 and #540 for actors dying at 27.

    The irony is that new Chekov died before old Chekov.

    Maybe they can replace him with either Edo or Gary Mitchell.
